Ah. the Sharks roster, chock full of the most unique, special, fragile snowflakes that ever graced a consistently good (regular season) team. And Mike Grier.

Sharks fans have been spoiled recent years by spectacular individual performances by guys like Joe Thornton, Jonathan Cheechoo, Patrick Marleau, Milan Michalek, and Grier.

Let's look at some of the key players, and what they need to do to help the team get over the team's mini-funk.
